Another great Syrah from Campesino. This is in the vein of the Northern Rhone but with lots of good California sunshine. Purple in color, mostly opaque and bright. The nose is very nice with black raspberries, black olives, slight dried lavender and a hint of moist turned earth. On the palate, this is smooth and easy to drink. But, there is also nice depth with good acidity. It opens beautifully in the glass showing black raspberry fruit and underlying earthiness. Nice finish. This may still improve but it will make nice drinking for another ten to twelve years. A great match for food off the grill and also stews or chili.
